Horizons in STEM Higher Education Conference: Call for papers now open

Posted 17th December 2015

The first Horizons in STEM Higher Education Conference: Making Connections and Sharing Pedagogy, supported by eSTEeM, will take place at the University of Leicester, UK from 30 June – 1 July 2016.  The conference will provide the opportunity for staff and students from across the tertiary education sector to share their teaching and learning innovation, pedagogic research and scholarship practice.  To facilitate the conference aims of “Making Connections and Sharing Pedagogy”, the programme is designed to encourage discussions both within and between STEM discipline areas.  Two types of contributions are therefore now invited, subject based and pedagogic theme based, to maximize such conversations.

Abstract submission for discipline specific contributions, and on the following themes:

  • Open Education
  • Students as partners in teaching and research
  • Enhancing the student experience
  • Reward and Recognition

will be accepted via Easychair until 28 February 2016.

Conference registration (£60 - day delegate rate, £195 - full conference registration including dinner and overnight accommodation) opens 15 January 2016, and closes 15 May 2016.  A number of undergraduate and postgraduate student bursaries will be available.

Further information on abstract submission and registration is available at or follow us on Twitter (@UKSTEMconf) for conference updates.
